Quality Products: Why We Do Not Install 3-Tab shingles

You may have heard of 3-tab shingles, a type of asphalt roofing material. It is often used by contractors to offer customers a cheaper roof installation. However, that lower cost can come with a hidden price tag. At Roof Medics, we understand the importance of quality products and why they are essential for successful and lasting roofs. Let’s explore why we don’t install 3-tab shingles on a new roof.

The Cost of Cheap Materials

3-tab shingles don’t cost much less than standard architectural shingles; however, they do not last as long or perform as well in certain weather conditions. This means that you will end up having more frequent repairs if you choose 3-tab shingles over higher quality products like  architectural shingles. Although purchasing lesser quality materials might seem to save money in the short term, it will end up costing more in the long run due to more frequent repairs and replacement costs down the line.

The Quality Difference

When compared to 3-tab shingles, architectural shingles reign supreme in almost every category. The 3-Tab shingles construction is a major flaw; they are made from only one piece of material, as opposed to multiple pieces being welded together for increased protection. This renders them much more vulnerable than architectural shingles which can withstand harsh weather conditions without sustaining damage. Moreover, their lack of defense leaves them exposed and susceptible to algae growth and other forms of destruction.
